Handrails are a Functional Part of Staircases

Many times, the design and thought into handrails are overlooked. As a creator, we’re sure you agree that staircases are vital elements of safety and function for homes, offices, stores, and buildings. Handrails are the most used part of any staircase, next to stair treads. Responsible for supporting and stabilizing endless weight and pressure, staircase handrails should get equal attention as other stair parts.

Building a durable and purposeful stairway includes a quality and aesthetically pleasing stair railing. Let’s explore hand railing options at Southern Staircase and why we’re the best in the business.

Stair Railings for Indoor or Outdoor Steps

Handrail profiles are available as straight or bent/curved in any specification you need to comply with building codes.

Texture: Hammered or smooth

Shape: Round, square, or customized to any specific design you want

Material: Wood, metal (wrought iron, aluminum, stainless steel), stone, or marble

  • A wrought iron or stainless steel handrail for example is extremely low maintenance and offers safety, strength, and style. This is a great update for home developments, condos, and apartments.
  • For example, stunning ornamental metal handrails are made in our state-of-the-art metal fabrication facilities. Offer an upgrade option or simply make a statement for your interior design projects.
  • Wood handrails provide a classy and traditional look. They can be sanded, skimmed, and shaped into any design or etching you would like.
  • Cable railing systems pair exquisitely with steel and wooden handrails. They are a fun option for a more modern home development or multi-interior design projects.

Finish: A wide range of stains and powder-coated options give home buyers of your development or large-scale interior design projects many options to make a staircase their own.
